The FIU Panthers have won 4 of their last 5 games, and bowl eligibility is right in front of them with a 5 - 3 record coming into this weekend. They'll have to get by the FAU Owls who have already claimed their 6 wins in 2019 as the battle for the Conference USA East Division title ensues.

At 6 - 3 overall, the Owls sit with a 4 - 1 record in conference play tied on top with Marshall. While FAU has won 6 of their last 7 games, that lone loss coming to that Herd team is big considering they are both 4 - 1 and tied on top of the East standings.

The line setters have made their statement posting FAU as double-digit home favorites, and a total of 61 seems to be what we have to deal with here.

FIU looking to build on run of wins from 4 of their last 5 outings

FIU has won 4 of their last 5 games and although it's great to be back in the fight the Panthers will be underdogs in all 3 of their final regular-season games.

At the same token, their opponents lately have been rather weak with wins over UMass, Charlotte, UTEP, and Old Dominion accounting for those 4 wins. The Panthers barely escaped with a 24 - 17 win last weekend over ODU, and we know the Monarchs 2019 campaign has been more than miserable with that 8-game losing skid in tow.

Senior QB James Morgan really didn't make much of an impression last weekend, as he didn't have a TD pass going 20 for 33 in the win. FIU ran the ball 41 times and only picked up 131 yards on the ground, which is obviously not all that impressive either. Morgan did run for a score in the win, however, which is not usually his forte being involved with the ground game

Junior WR Shemar Thornton had a big game receiving with 125 yards with only 6 grabs, although he didn't make his way to the end zone in the win.

Lane Kiffin is much too overrated to speak about

Everyone had FAU pegged to be going to the Conference USA title game with an East Division crown. Lane Kiffin is the best thing since sliced bread, and if you believe that I am selling a bridge here in New York REAL CHEAP FOR YA!

We all need to keep in mind that this conference and football don't exactly put fear in anyone, and there are a lot of simply bad teams in C-USA.

Being picked first to win your division in C-USA is like being picked first in a line-dancing class when you are 7-years old. Who am I? What is this? I want my mommy!!! LOL

Seriously, this has got to be the worst division in college football, and I am not talking about rankings and blah blah. I am just talking the eye-test and how much shit comes out of C-USA this season.

FAU among them, because we have seen what happened when this program faced an actual football school. Losses each of the 3 times and why they are 6 - 3.

The FAU pass offense has been respectable, at least, as they sit 27th in the land putting up 278.9 ypg through the air. The run game has some work to do averaging 140.7 ypg which has them ranked back at 92nd in the Nation.

Sophomore QB Chris Robinson has put up 2,339 passing yards this season, and his 17 - 4 TD to INT ratio works just fine.

The FAU pass defense ranks 109th in the country allowing 261.5 ypg, and they rank 73rd in total yards allowed with 404.6 ypg.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Bark at me loud and proud! I see double-digits and I couldn't get this play in quick enough. I think I made about 6 typos from wanting to get through this preview so I could get here.

I am sorry but these two teams are not that far apart in talent, in the standings, and this is a rivalry game for goodness sake! Give me points or give me death!

If this line were 6 or 7 it might make me think a little, but with 10+? No brainer for me.

FIU +10.5 is the play on the side.

Prediction: FIU +10.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Sure I will expect points and why wouldn't we?

I do, so to see a game that all we end in the 30s is okay by me.

I can foresee a 34 - 31 game taking place here, with the dog barking at the +10.5 and the total coming in with it.

Over 60.5 is the play on the total.

Prediction: Over 60.5
